I booked 2 interconnected apartments and found the whole experience terrible. Best summed up as a backpacker hostel with room service. Thermostat did not work so was cold the whole stay leading to our whole family getting sick! There was no view. Only plus side is the location. Find somewhere better!

The heavens opened like the biblical flood, as I exited the St James subway station. As I looked up to the bleak sky, and contemplated the ten minute walk to the Mantra on Kent, foremost in my mind was the thought of a dry hand towel, and the inner peace it would bring to my soon to be sodden soul....

Staff were at all times approachable, friendly, and helpful. The room was OK but given I had business to do would have been better with a desk and chair. Air Conditioning not so easy and a little noisy but efficient.

Fabulous location in the heart of Sydney CBD and a walk from Darling Harbour and the ICC. Staff, room and facilities were just lovely - felt like home. QVB a street away, great cafes and the Papermill just across the road - fab coffee !!

Decent price, good location, buffet breakfast below average. The room was old and outdated. The bedroom is nice. The kitchen, laundry and bathroom is old-looking. The hotel is close to main shopping and attractions.

Stayed here last week with a few friends for a conference we were attending nearby at the ICC Sydney. Was great to be central and took only ten mins to walk to Conf or 5 mins for Uber ($8) out front if raining. Staff were friendly and accomodating and room was serviced well and clean. Thanks Mantra!

I booked 4 rooms as 2 interconnected apartments which is great for a big group. Kitchen facilities are very handy to reduce need to eat out. Corner room with glimpse of Darling Harbour is good. Not all 4 rooms were cleaned each day which was a mystery but they were very clean to start with so wasn't a real problem....

Great location for a city stay! Large rooms, comfy beds, great shower, yummy breakfast, lots of kitchen facilities. Friendly and helpful staff, cup cakes on arrival. Close to Darling Harbour and Town Hall but lovely and quiet.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
